    What is the exchange rate on that?
    I feel your pain about moving, about 10years ago I moved from NJ to WV and moved a lathe light 10" South bend with 45" bed on home built bench, a mill, a cutter grinder and other shop tools (All heavy) at that time I had a neighbor with a back hoe who helped me.
    After 6 years in WV the wife decided we should move some where with less snow.
    I moved every thing except cutter grinder and 24"x24" surface plate, this time I had no one to help at new location.
    I told my wife after the move, the next time I move it will be in an Urn!

    1 ruble = $0.0185 USD

    Our biggest problem currently is being American citizens just on the other side of the Azov Sea from where the fighting is. A few people in high places don't like that, no matter how much community support we have (we have more friends here than we ever had in the USA).

    Snow vs never having snow.
    I moved from SoCal to Missouri. It wasn't so much the climate change, just more defined seasons, if that makes sense. Pack way summer clothes, pull out fall, big deal. Wife's (Austrian) saying "There isn't bad weather, just bad clothing".

    The real measure; difficultly getting a building running here is nothing like impossibility of attaining same there. I literally bought a structure, had flat roof cut away entirely, replaced by free span trusses for equivalent ~6.5 years leasing or rent would have been, by square feet alone.
    Not considering features gained; loading dock high, 16' ceiling, 3 big doors, commercial zoning on a thoroughfare, freestanding, decent space on 3 sides, to name a few.
    Sincerely,

    It would have been; but decided at our ages, getting rural property set that way very impractical. And eventual possibility in disposing of one would jeopardize the other.
    A home in town, building a short distance away; best combination. If not carrying anything large, a few minutes bike ride.

    Lumber has come down. 1-1/2 yrs. ago I was in the middle of putting in a new floor in a 15x25 room. Before the pandemic I priced 1/2 plywood 4'x8' $28.00 a sheet. When I was finally ready the price per sheet was $66.00. I needed 15 sheets to start. The guy said did you hit the lottery? LOL. What could I do, had to have it. Mr Mikey.
